Excursion
Discover the major sights of Budapest, through a guided sightseeing tour on new and comfortable buses. The tour will lead you along famous buildings and historical places of Budapest and you will take guided small walks on Heroes Square, Gellért Hill and Castle Hill. There will be an opportunity for visiting the Fishermen's Bastion and Matthias Church as well. Buses depart from the hotel and arrive early in the evening to the same place so you can take part on the cultural program as well.

Cultural event  - Chamber concert
You can enjoy a chamber concert by Hungarian Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, one of Hungary’s most famous chamber orchestras. The Hungarian Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1988 by violinist Miklós Szenthelyi (Artistic Director of Liszt Ferenc Music Academy) with excellent young musicians of the college. They had numerous tours to the U.S., Canada, Japan, India, South Korea, South America and almost every country in Europe. During the last decades the Virtuosi gave more than 50 tours on three continents and the number of their tour concerts exceeds 500.
The venue will be the historic building of Gymnasium St. Margaritae in Újbuda, easily accessible from the conference venue. A wonderful program in a magnificent venue!

Gala dinner
The gala dinner of the conference will take place on the ship Europe, the largest and most frequented event ship of Central Europe. We will take a cruise during the evening on the Danube, so we shall have an opportunity to enjoy the sights of the famous bridges of the city and watch the lighted Parliament, Castle Hill, the Academy building and many other great sights along the Danube. Guests arriving for the evening will be welcomed by finger food and welcome drinks then we shall have a four-course dinner, during which we can taste famous Hungarian wines as well. Dinner is followed by a Hungarian folk dance performance, after which anybody is welcome to learn a few folk dance steps as well. The ship will depart from and arrive to the Batthyány Square, which is in the city centre and relatively near to the conference venue.
